We are happy to share that Italy’s first English language newspaper, Italian Insider, has dedicated an article to Creative Italy.

The piece includes quotes and anecdotes from some of the expert artisans that work with Creative Italy, who share their passions and the challenges they face in today’s world.
“Breathing new life into Italy’s artisan sector” also interviews the founders of Creative Italy, Federica Baggiani and Laura Notarbartolo.
